Ridiculous Penalty


I have never been to any Election's talk before. I long to attend one. I'm really curious of how the speakers or oppositions conduct their talks. The strategy, the cover-up, the criticism and loads more.

My mum and brother attended a DAP's talk and brother told me how the opposition pick holes in Taib (our Cheif Minister) and kutuk him badly. Although it's rather condemning, yet it's a bit funny to hear of their speeches.

FOFLMHO, Falling On the Floor, Laughing My Head Off! =D =D =D

Anyway, i'm 20. Am still not qualified to vote for this election. **phew phew** All I should say to all voters is "Vote for best and Best party wins!"


When it comes to driving, I believe that majority of the drivers will start to get perturbed. Especially when there are police officers drive pass your car and intentionally stop your car at the roadside. Like it or not, every driver will definitely undergo this occurrence at least once in their driving life.

Or should i say, "A must-visit by the police". =P

In Malaysia, this typical incident seems to happen quite frequent. Somehow our police officers just enjoy stopping drivers' cars out of the blue. I couldn't blame if the drivers behave negligently and recklessly while driving. Purposely accelerate twice faster when it's red light. Drivers that are not supposed to park at the forbidden area choose to risk their vehicles and station there. Drivers without seatbelt fasten on. Drivers with their pom-pom cars. Lots more.

Can't blame. It's evidently our faults and the serve-you-right's drivers should just hold the responsibility. Penalty from the police officers. Saman Saman Saman.

On the contrary, it's also factual that 50%-60% of the fines is not plainly our culpabilities. Some police officers might just fine you for no reason, even if you do not break any single of laws. I mean, utter innocence.

In Malaysia, we are surely conscious with this phrase, "Kopi-O". You will not only find this Kope-O in Kopi-tiam but also on the road. Not to deny it, some police officers, i emphasize again, some, are just so into this habit. No choice. We got to dwell in such situation if you want to drive. Drivers who are clearly faultless get into trouble. No matter how well you try to convince the police officers that you are obviously blameless, they will also convince you another way round that you are to be blame. Ridiculous, indeed.

I have yet to stumble upon this situation, but knowing that sooner this will happen. So, behold!

Few days ago, one of my friend's dad was fined by an officer with a extremely ridiculous excuse. Read it.


What say you?

Tidak Memakai Kasut Semasa Memandu (Didn't wear shoes while driving) . Huh? That's such a weird and unacceptable penalty ba... and it's rather funny too! Haha..!

Why would a driver get fined of not wearing shoes while driving?

Does it make any sense? I still couldn't figure it out. I never know there's such law. Something new? My friend's dad got fined for Rm 150 just because of that ridiculous yet funny excuse! Rm 150 man! That's pricey!

Haha.. Who knows, maybe you might get fined with the reason of wearing black sun glasses while driving under a hot hot hot sun~~~ It's unpredictable! LOL!

So drivers, you just gotta be extra tolerant and cautious while driving. All eyes are watching!


I just found out that there IS a law that requires lorry drivers to wear proper footwear when driving.

And the law calls for not only shoes, but SAFETY BOOTS.

in the first place, why does one wear slippers when riding a motorcycle? It's dangerous, one should wear shoes or boots. you need a good grip on the pedals. And considering how close one's feet is to the tarmac riding one of those contraptions...

I say to hell with that summon, but don't be an idiot by risking safety, so wear shoes!

I know alot of friends that drive without any shoes on lar because they say can feel the pedals better! Can understand lar if it is motorbike cannot wear slipper or those driving those big lorries need to wear proper shoes but private car? In this case, do we need to wear safety helmet in the car too???

Next time if you ever to identify a JPJ or pilice car, just turn to a junction and wait till they're gone. That's the safest way as you can't be so sure what kind of person they are.

Next time when we see policemen, just stop them and ask them bout these rules. See whether it's true or not.

dav didi: yea, confused? Same goes to me.. it's a new rule i guess!

jen's place: true true, i would prefer driving without shoe on. It's more comfortable and controllable. who knows, maybe with the new gov. rule, we might need to wear helmet all times! haha!!

ezekiel: okay, good idea. Later the JPJ ppl see us and ask us why stop at the road side, we can answer them "Mau elak kamu, polis!" hehe..

Pmp: yea, we should ask for their Polices id too.. haha, in case it's illegal police..

For the young generation out there, for your info, this is not a new rule, it has been there for ages...even my dad knew about it and warned me the day I started my driving lesson... :D There is a rule that says we are to keep apart from every car by at least 3 feet... :O Haha...I wonder how we are going to get down from the car to measure every time we step on the brakes...any ideas? :)
